From Secretary of Convention Chuck Till:
"Notice is hereby given that the 205th Annual Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina on Saturday, March 6, 2021 has been moved to the Friday Center for Continuing Education, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This is an abbreviated “drive-in” Convention that will take place in the parking lot of the Friday Center..." Read full notice
Amend canons via resolutions that will permit (but not require) Conventions and Annual Parish Meetings to take place by videoconference.
There will be no registration for Convention, though we will need to know if you plan to attend (link for that coming soon). Rather, we will send you credentials in advance at no charge to you. Your credentials will be recorded as you enter the parking lot of the Friday Center, thereby providing a quorum count and a record of attendees. There will be a station in the parking lot where problems with credentials can be resolved.
Audio from the dais will be broadcast on FM radio that you can receive in your vehicle. This is a one-way transmission.
Voting will be by means of your vehicle’s horn. Not many vehicles will have line of sight to the dais, unfortunately, and there will be no video screens.
